Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge is situated on a riverine fringe of the mighty Zambezi River where Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia converge. Imbabala offers the chance to unwind but also some of the most amazing game viewing and bird watching in the region, in the seclusion of a private National Parks concession. The 5,000 acre concession has 14 kilometres of private Zambezi River frontage and borders Botswana’s Chobe Forest Reserve.
Imbabala is located 80 kilometres west of Victoria Falls, and access is by transfer from Victoria Falls, Livingstone or Kasane.
The Lodge offers exclusive accommodation for only 18 guests in 8 individual thatched lodges (1 is a family unit which sleeps 4) with en-suite facilities. Each chalet has a view over the Zambezi, which can be enjoyed from your private veranda, complete with hammock.
Meals are taken al fresco or in the main dining room. The lodge prides itself on the cuisine, which includes a lot of fresh ingredients, with a local flair.
The swimming pool offers cool relaxation during the heat of the day.
Experienced guides are on hand for all activities. Exploring the Zambezi River by boat affords guests an exclusive river experience, especially as Imbabala has access to 14 kilometres of River frontage, making for exclusive exploration. Game drives in the private concession area are popular and often provide excellent game sightings including lion, wild dog, elephant, giraffe and kudu. Night drives can be equally rewarding. The area has approximately 420 bird species, making it an exciting venue for birders.
It is a short drive to neighbouring Botswana’s Chobe National Park, making Imbabala the ideal location both to explore Victoria Falls and to go on safari.
Elephant lovers will not only be fascinated by the huge herds of elephant in the Chobe National Park but can also go on elephant back safari at Imbabala's sister Lodge The Elephant Camp at Victoria Falls.
